Why did Love Live sell so much?

Sure it was decent, but enough to warrant 25k + all the merch that's moving?
Why?
>>
>>101850094
Because LoveLive fandom exist even before the anime. And it has die-hard fan who's willing to buy.
>>
>>101850094

Because it's perfect pick-your-waifu otaku-pandering shit that had an established fanbase before it even was released.

Because Japan is retarded. The characters and the music are neat, yeah, but in every aspect worse than im@s

>>101850094
Actually, it's 28K+ now. Each week each volume still adds about 100-200 more.

Established fanbase wasn't that big. See>>101851442
Love Live sells well because it's a genuine series aimed at making people feel good an rejuvenated. It has beautiful character design, excellence production value and nice songs. People feel the love putting into this show so the response to it. There's nothing hard to understand.

You have no idea what you are talking about. Quit trying to fit in.

Because it was actually fun and nice until the last few episodes, with good music.

Can't say the same for other shit idoru shows like WUG and AKB.
>>
Because it's an earnest show about passionate girls climbing to the top.
>>
>>101859128
If that is all you got out of it, then you didn't understand this show at all.

It has better songs than Idolmolestor

Idolshit sells like hotcakes in Japan regardless of quality.

Because it didn't have to pander to those goddamn heterofaggots like what HaChaPre is doing as we speak. It's just nine cute girls singing to be idols and doing cute things with each other.

I once jacked off to Nozomi using only my imagination and it was amazing.

Edged for 30 minutes with only my imagination.

Is she one of the most popular in Japan? I blew the biggest load.

I didn't mind it very much. It's to be expected of an idol anime.

It's probably the only show I'm really hyped about this year next to Hanamonogatari.
